I have lots of lovely trim lying around my sewing room, and the other day I was thinking... (and no, I didn't hurt myself. much.)....I should really use it more...and so these super easy headbands were born. They're very basic, but you could always slap a crocheted or fabric flower on them to fancy it up, or even just a clip.
I was given this lovely piece of trim from my pal and sewing co-hort, Jessie, for my birthday, I love the little lavender flowers on it!
All you need is:
at least 1 yard of trim-wider is better but skinnier trim would work, just hand sew the elastic on, and use 1/4" elastic
First I measured around Sadie's noggin-19.5". I cut a piece of trim that was 19", then a piece of elastic that was about 1.5" long.
Then I folded each raw edge of the trim under 1/2" , then sewed the elastic on top of the fold, on the wrong side of the trim. That seemed to do the trick with sizing...but it's probably best to cut a slightly longer piece of elastic, sew one side on, then try it on and adjust before sewing on the other side.
Either way-it's pretty foul proof, and super easy to boot! I think this would look so cute for us big girls, with some lace trim! Hmmm......
